Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A compendium of six short films by French filmmakers, any one of which might prove diverting in the right place at the right time but all of which, cumulatively, donâ(TM)t much make for a knockout night at the cinema."

"Shorts programs require a gambler's mentality -- roll the dice, take your chances -- and thankfully, this collection of French snippets has two that offset a sense of 'comme ci, comme ça' curating."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"A sprightly collection of Gallic short subjects that sprints from romantic froth to earnest documentation (almost) without skipping a beat."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Film Journal International
